It's easy to take family for granted, isn't it? Until you go to live in a different country…
Visits are great, and near impossible right now. Zoom is magical. But it can’t replace hugs. Or being there in times of sadness and celebration.
As expats and migrants, long-distance familying is a poignant experience. Often desperately wanted, but also overwhelmingly hard some days.
Helen Ellis’s thought-provoking research on distance grand-parenting gives insight into what it takes for all family members to succeed in staying emotionally close, while physically apart.
Mobile Relocation brings you a FREE webinar with Helen on Wednesday, 24 June @ 7:30pm NZST.

We hope this webinar provides support to the expat and migrant community familying from afar in the COVID-19 world. Please invite your grandparents and distant family members to join us too. Places are limited, so register now.
Bridget and Helen are both FIGT members who, despite being fellow Kiwis, met at an FIGT Coffee and Connect session! www.mobile-relocation.com
